Depending upon variety, the Manzana chile pepper ranges in color from light green when immature to bright yellow, orange and red when ripe. Its heat level can vary from mild to hot depending upon the specific variety and maturity of the pepper. Like many peppers, the Manzana can be used when immature, but it is most commonly utilized in its fully mature stage. Scoville units range between 10,000 and 30,000 on average. Removing the seeds and membrane of the Manzana chile pepper will reduce the heat. Its flesh is soft offering a meaty texture and its aroma and flavor are pungent with fruit like nuances.
The spice and flavor of the Manzana pepper marry well with lime, avocados, onion, oregano, tomatoes, cheese, cornmeal, sweet potatoes, fish and grilled meats.
